Dr. Morrison is a Pediatric Emergency Medicine physician and health literacy researcher and advocate. Her overarching career goal is to better understand and impact the pathway linking low health literacy to poor health outcomes, including increased ED utilization. Her vision is to transform healthcare communication to help children and families understand and make decisions about their health including when to seek emergency care.
Her research has focused on the effects of parent health literacy and the decision to seek non-urgent emergency care for children that are otherwise healthy. Dr. Morrison also has interest in ED use by children with chronic illness, including asthma and sickle cell disease. She is studying the impact of health literacy-related interventions on ED use in patients with chronic illness. She has published work regarding health literacy and ED utilization, health literacy measurement in parents, and health literacy and clinical care in the ED. She is involved in health literacy clinical efforts at Children’s Wisconsin including development of educational materials for caregivers and patients and serves as the Co-Director of the Children’s Wisconsin Health Literacy Task Force.
